    I confess I really didn't want to switch seats at the work meal tonight. I had a great time anyway, but would have maybe got to know someone better if politeness hadn't gotten in the way.

    Wedding planning has made me acutely aware of how few close friends, especially female friends, I have.

    My fiancé has no idea who he wants to be his best man. He had a falling out with his best friend of 25 years. Part of me wants to say fuck it, the dog can be the best man and we don't need anyone else. But it is hard being bombarded with photos of brides and their bridesmaids all happy and matching and perfect.

    Um, which dog? Because you said dog singular and one of them is going to be gutted if you pick the other! :p

    EDIT: As in, disappointed. I'm not going to come round and eviscerate the loser.

    One dog would be my best man (shippo) and rumple would be my hubby's best man. And my cats could be the fluffy white pillows the rings sat on.

    Clearly!

    And none of our friends would think it weirder than usual.

    Omg built in tux! So true!!

    My wife's maid of honour had been her friend for a good ten years -- but was terrible about the whole thing, eventually being quite frankly offensive to my wife, and they basically hardly talked again after the wedding. So, you know, even when you think you have someone, that may or may not be a good thing.

    Given how much kvetching I hear from people tapped to be bridesmaids, I suspec that a lot of those photos of the brides and all her smiling friends are taken because it is expected, everyone is playing their roles, and it is not always as happy and jolly as it looks in the constructed photo.

    IC that I’m frustrated, but it has to be the most purely ‘1st world problems’ sort of frustration possible so I don’t really expect sympathy

    My son is a big fan of the band Billy Talent, so for Christmas we bought him three tickets – he can take us, or a couple of his friends, his choice (but we don’t know his choice). My wife and I like the band fairly well too, so would be entirely happy to go to the concert.

    Now it turns out that on the exact same day the band Mother Mother will also be playing in town, and wife and I are both big fans of that band. AND opening for Mother Mother is K Flay, and wife and I have both been enjoying her song “Blood in the Cut” and I’ve listened to a few of her other things on youtube and liked them quite well, and am planning to see if I can find some of her material to give Wife at Christmas …. so would be very happy to go see her, too.

    But we don’t want to buy tickets to that yet, until we know the boy’s decision about the other concert, and possibly if he does decide to take friends to Billy Talent it may turn out that Mother Mother + K Flay will be sold out …

    Roles is right! Weddings were originally business contracts between families, but this has long been overshadowed, in the U.S. at least (and, apparently, Canada as well) by the wedding as entertainment. It is now a show, starring the bride, and it is becoming increasingly popular for the entire wedding party to have a dance studio choreograph routines for everyone to perform at the reception(sheesh!). So it is hardly surprising that the same enmities and power struggles arise in a wedding as in a movie or theatrical production. :(

    They do look inherently dapper, do they not? (Our Frenchie has Boston-like markings, so I know about this...)

    Even when they're being silly. Which they do.

    I have never met a sillier dog. He's completely absurd in the best way. I had only met a few before we got Archer and now I can't imagine life without one. They just ooze personality and he attacks everything in life with boundless enthusiasm.

    I know what you mean Lille. Mine is a Boston/Pit mix so I get all the Boston personality with a dash of pit bull swagger thrown in!
